Persuasive, Enticing & Plausible Words of Wisdom!

Share

Demonstrating The Power of God!

1 Corinthians 2:4-5 And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power [[a]a proof by the Spirit and power of God, operating on me and stirring in the minds of my hearers the most holy emotions and thus persuading them],5So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God.

2 Timothy 1:7-8 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 8Do not blush or be ashamed then, to testify to and for our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for His sake, but [[a]with me] take your share of the suffering [to which the preaching] of the Gospel [may expose you, and do it] in the power of God.

Reflection: Have you ever listened to someone speak & after they were through you were totally confused as to what they said? Paul knew that fancy words or even words that made him seem wise would not change the heart of man! He knew that in order to touch people's lives that it had to be demonstrate in his speech by the Holy Spirit & the power of God! Did you know that the gospel was made simple & easy to understand so that all could understand it and be saved? We don’t have to debate with someone or hit them over the head with a bible! We don’t need to condemn or judge them! All we have to do is use the demonstrating power of the word of God & the Holy Spirit will show up & do His part! We have to understand in order for God to do His part, we must do our part. What’s our part “speak the word of God”! When you preach the “gospel” people will get saved! The gospel goes straight to the heart; religion goes straight to the head!
